1:1 Chromebook Policy
Students will be issued a school-owned chromebook, charger and carrying case, for school and home use for their time at TCHS. Beginning with the Class of 2026, students will be allowed to keep their school-issued chromebook upon graduation. Students in the Classes of 2023-2025 will have the option to purchase a used chromebook upon graduation upon availability on a first-come, first-serve basis.
